Abstract

High performance, epoxy-based systems are widely and increasingly used in structural aerospace and other applications as both adhesives and the matrix of fibre-reinforced composites. Many studies have been conducted on epoxy systems directed towards elucidating structure-property relationships. This has resulted in a greatly increased level of understanding of these complex systems but has also indicated the complexity of the interrelations between composition, thermal history and properties.
